Visiting Medical Students


We participate in the AAMC Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) portal for away elective applications. Our campus has transitioned to VSLO for all visiting student applications for the 2021-2022 academic year.  If your school does not participate in the VSLO portal, then we will not be able to accommodate your application. We are no longer processing paper applications.  

Students who have already earned the equivalent of the MD degree at the time of application or by the time of the start date of the elective are not eligible to apply. 

LSU Health Shreveport Visiting Student policy can be found here.

We will begin accepting applications on September 7, 2021 for Caribbean schools.  Applications will be processed beginning September 14, 2021.  

Caribbean Visiting Medical Students, if your school has an approved affiliation agreement with LSUHSC - Shreveport, please email for instructions on applying.
